vegan potluck (every other Saturday)

  • Jun 7, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

You are invited to join a vegan potluck dinner at my home. If you take your diet and health seriously you will probably enjoy this event. "Vegan" excludes not just meat, poultry and fish, but also other animal derived products such as eggs, dairy (milk, yogurt, cheese, butter, cream, etc) and honey. A vegan diet is 100% plant based. For ideas you can google "vegan recipes".

Each participant is invited to spend some significant effort to prepare a healthy vegan dish and share with the rest of us, the recipe. Please post a comment indicating what you plan to bring so that we can avoid duplicates.

Unfortunately I have to limit the number so that we can have a sit-down dinner. But since it will happen regularly, hopefully participants can rotate and give a chance for every interested person in the area to attend.

There will be no alcohol available at my home but you are welcome to bring your own if it is a necessary ingredient for you to have a nice dinner. Also instead of air conditioners, my home has natural cool breeze and fans, in case it has an impact on how you dress for the event.

Dinner will be usually preceded by a short program on topics such as health, yoga, meditation, singing, spirituality, etc. Any volunteers for leading / facilitating such a program for 1/2 to 1 hour, can contact me with an idea.

It is always nice to have a few non-vegans to join us as well. You are not required to bring a dish for the potluck; however if you do, we request that it be a vegan dish.

    i have to agree with Bob. very inconsiderate for people not to come when they have rsvp'd because the people on the waiting list do not get to join in.

      Thanks Helen, it was great to meet you. (Finally someone from Berkeley in Florida!) your green beans were delicious.

      I wasn't too unhappy about it since we had sufficient variety of food with 6 people and we got to know each other slightly better with less people! Thanks for your participation bob!

    Sorry about the waiting list for this event! I have now doubled the frequency for this event (every two weeks instead of every month). June 21st event is wide open! See you soon!

    June 3, 2014

    • Sri V.

      We look forward to meeting you as well. Thanks for indicating what you plan to bring so others can plan around it.

    I'm going to college at the end of June but I would like to go since this is my last chance! :)

    • Sri V.

      Rachel, please see post about last month. Let us see how this turns out with the count. If necessary I will try to increase the count a bit later to accommodate your request.

    I’ll bring pasta with a cashew sauce.

  • Sri V.

    I will bring some curried red kidney beans (rAjmA). If there is interest we will attempt some group singing before dinner. No worries since I will introduce some basics and no prior knowledge or singing experience will be assumed. Theory is that EVERYONE can sing since we all have the same vocal chord!
